May 17 Date for Receiving Con
tributions for Twelfth Street
TO HAVE STANDS ABOUT CITY
All Will be I'xpectcd to Aid in This
. May 17 has been appointed by the
ladies having the undertaking in
charge as the date of receiving con
tributions for the improvement of
Twelfth street from the termination
of the pavement at Eighteenth avenue
to the entrance of Cbippiannoek cem
etery, the highway between these
points iKMng- almost impassable in
the wet season.
The date was agreed upon at a
meeting held yesterday at the home
of Mrs. Jii'n T. Cable. The plan is to
have stands in charge of the ladies on
prominent corners air.l in the main
buildings of the city during the day,
so that everyone will have opportun
ity in passing to give from his or her
purse in behalf of this most worthy
cause in which the good women have
enlisted their efforts. Those appoint
ed to ilircct the enterprise are:
I.allrs in Chance
Mrs. Lynde, Mrs. .1. M, 15uford, Mrs.

Mrs. I'oscnhchl, Mrs. l'otter,

Johnson, Miss Head.
Improvement a Nrrinlty.
The ladies do not wish to be under
stood to be appealing to the public in
the name of charily. The letterment
of the condition of Twelfth street is
.1 n ccssity, a fact, of whieh anyone
who has traveled this road in the win
ter or spring is cognisant.
l-'iim ra I processions are interrupt
ed and many are comjxdled to forego
visits to the graves of loved ones as a
result i.r the deplorable state in which
this highway is found in certain sea
sons. It is a common cause this propos
ed improvement, so let everyone do
his share when the ladies eotne forth
on the day designated seeking funds.

SYNOD ASKED TO CONTROL
APPOINTMENT OF PASTORS
At the meeting of the Augustana
synod to be held in Tshpeming, Mich.,
next month one important matter I'"
be disposed of is a proposition that
the synod control the appointment of
la-dors. It is stated that at presen
the young men arc in so great de
mand among' the churches that the
oliler- men and men of 'larger and
more valuable exp'rienee are being
left .t-thout a ppoint ment s.
For a long time in the synod it has
been seen that some of the abie and
t xpcrieiiccd ministers-have foiird it
soinev hat difficult to obtain proper
fields in which to work. Congrega
tions have been disinclined to accept
the Id ministers and call for the
young and inexeperienced men. As a
tesult good and faithful workers are
eft without jH-rmanen t employment.
As a result some of the congregations
are- suffering. ' It is not likely that
Hay measure providing for snper-Ms-on'tyy
the synod will be adopted.
The Augustana Journal says:
"On the whole there is not any
thing new in this. ( I'sually the
young men are a a premium. This
is particularly true of the financial
world. Many are the complaints
over' this state of afairs, but it seems
almost impossible to find an adequate
remedy for it. And it is no, prob
able that the proposal now before the
synod will find enough favor to carry.
The Iowa conference, we believe, has
petitioned the synod to vot the.
measure down. Individual congrega
tions have also taken th. question
.p and gone on record as lH'in.T
sc.iiarcly opjiosed to it. This being
ihe case, there is not mneh hope for
Ms ultimate acceptance.- Hut the
delegates ought nevertheless to give
the subject their most caicfi:! ccn
sMeiation. This is -their duty ami
Ihe. matter is also most important."

Carbon Cliff, Scene of Recent
Epidemic, Still Has Case
THOMAS LAUGHER Y IS PATIENT
Public School 1 1 ar Reopened AVltb
Carbon Cliff'sfill has a case of
smallpox in the' lersoii of . Thomas
Laughery, who is the only person that
has it at the present time. In a few
days the quarantine will be raised on
him and then the little village will be
clear of the drvailed disease which
has been present continually for the
past two months.
Last Monday school reopened 'and
there are about forty pupils enrolled,
not as many as before the school was
closed on account of smallpox. Will
iam Mardis, the teacher and who had
one of the most pronounced cases,
has charge of the school again.
Han Had 53 Canes.
When Mr. Laughrey is over his case
the village will have had more cases
than anyvof the three cities. He will
complete a total of fifty-two cases.
The quarantine at Colona has been
raised and school resumed yesterday.
EARLY REPORT FROM
GRAND JURY EXPECTED
The circuit court was convened this
morning by Judge (Jest and remained
in session long enough to arrange a
trial list for next week. No import
ant, cases were set. most of them be
ing appeals that have been standing
in the way of matters of more mo
ment. The business before the grand jury
is light and it is probable that that
body will be ready to report after all
ot her day's work. Some of the mem
bers are desirous of attending the
state republican convention and it
may be that an adjournment will be
taken this evening till next week.
DRUNKEN WOMEN LEAD

but at last Officer Schnert surprised
them while they were stopped at a
saloon on Fifth street and took them
into custody. When the capture was
